JUSTIN NORRIS, was born and raised in Western Massachusetts and is a self-taught student of multimedia expressions ranging from graffiti, to fine art, to dance. Beginning his exploration with visual art about sixteen years ago, Norris began his experimentations in graffiti, and has gradually worked his way onto canvas and other non-traditional mediums.  At the age of seventeen he found his love for movement and dance while attending the Pioneer Valley Performing Arts High school. Justin was introduced to Pilobolus in 2007 when he auditioned and soon after began to teach for the Pilobolus Education Programs and work with Pilobolus Creative Services. In 2009 he received the James Baldwin Scholarship to Hampshire College for visual art and began his more formal investigation into dance.  Justin is a recent college graduate and currently a freelance visual creator, think tank and problem solver.
